    Opportunity: Postdoctoral Research Scientists in Genomics Quantitative and Mathematical Modeling Biology @ Columbia University -- New York, NY (US) ***UPDATED***
    Submitted by Paula Ralph-Birkett; posted on Thursday, August 13, 2020

    BACKGROUND

    The Program for Mathematical Genomics group at Columbia University Irving Medical Center (systemsbiology.columbia.edu/the-[...]omics) is a cross campus interdisciplinary effort that brings together evolutionary biologists, computer scientists, physicists and mathematicians, to uncover the structure of genomic data and to study the maps that link genotype to phenotype. It constitutes a space for the free exchange of ideas and methods of quantitatively-minded scientists with a the goal to of provide achieving a quantitative understanding of biological systems. We collaborate with clinicians and public health researchers from around the world to explore several disease systems, including the genetics and epidemiology of infectious diseases, cancer, and the human microbiome; as well as carry out basic biological research in microbial metabolism, and protein structure and function; and the modeling of biological networks prediction based on large scale biologically-motivated machine learning. We are building a vibrant community of researchers who use their insights and techniques to solve pressing biomedical problems in translational and basic biology.

    RESPONSIBILITIES

    We are now seeking postdoctoral researchers to join a creative team in a collaborative environment developing mathematical techniques for the analysis of high-dimensional, high-throughput sequencing and biological data.

    REQUIREMENTS

    • PhD degree in any quantitative science (preferably mathematics, computer science, physics, astrophysics, computational biology, statistics, or engineering) is required.
    • Expertise in high-throughput sequencing technologies is highly valued.
    • Experience with clinical data from large biobanks is also highly valued.
    • Candidates should have a working knowledge of programming (Python, R, Java or C++) and statistical analysis with demonstrated experience in problem solving.
    • Practical knowledge of algorithms and databases is required.
    • Excellent organizational and communication skills are a must.

    HOW TO APPLY
